I have recently been blasted because of some of my political beliefs. And some of the things that have been said have not been very nice. I have been told that my BLOG is full of drivel, and mis-information, and that I am a fear-monger. I have also been called hypocritical and illogical. I have also been accused of belonging to the Church of Glenn Beck, and told I eat children. (Well, not the last part, YET.)
What I find interesting, is that I am told that I don’t look or believe in the facts, and that I am driven by Fear and that logic has escaped me because of this fear. But when I ask for facts that prove the contrary, I am either ignored, or scorned.
My favorite one that I have heard is that I don’t like Obama, because I am white and he is black. So because I don’t fall into step, I am either a bigot or a racist.
COLOR OF SKIN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. I don’t like Obama because of his very liberal and progressive stances. I feel he is pushing us to wards socialism (you can pick your flavor of socialism). It has nothing to do with the fact that he is a black man. In fact, I am proud of the fact that we have put race aside and have moved from a country that had slave owners to a country that has elected a black man to the most powerful position in the World.
I have thought about throwing in the towel, and giving up on voicing my political opinions, but I don’t think I am going to do that. I am going to continue to voice how I feel and where I feel the country needs to go. I guess you could say I am exercising my First Amendment Right to freedom of speech. I am going to ease off for a while on the political stuff, but will not stop it entirely. I still feel very strongly that our country is moving away from traditional values, and moving to wards the same liberal stances that destroyed ancient civilizations and governments in the past.
I do have one fear, and here it is. My fear is this. I am afraid that because the political pendulum is swinging so far left, to wards tyranny and power, that it will have to swing very far to the right, to wards revolution and anarchy, before it will come close to resting in the middle. The political scale is not about Democrats and Republicans, it is about ultimate power and tyranny on the left and no government and anarchy on the right. The middle is where it needs to be. The middle is where the constitution fights to put it. But because the constitution is being ignored, we have moved to wards a VERY powerful government, and are removing power from the people. We are removing GOD from our laws, we are removing the fact that our rights were given to us by a CREATOR, and not by man. And by removing GOD, we are making men our rulers, and allowing them to decide what rights we should and should not have.
I think we need to remember the Declaration of Independence, and its famous line:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..
Once we remove the unalienable Rights of the Creator; Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness from our government, and remove the consent of the governed, then we are no longer a free people.
